Medellín Cartel

The Medellín Cartel was an organized network of drug smugglers originating in the city of Medellín in Colombia and operated through the 1970s and 1980s.

Some of the members:

1. Pablo Escobar


In 1976 at the age of 27, Escobar married Maria Victoria when she was 15 years old

Considered to be the most ambitious and powerful drug lord in history

He was responsible for the killing of 30 judges, 457 policemen, and other deaths at a rate of 20 each day for two months. In total he is directly responsible for the deaths of over 4,000 people.

Estimated personal wealth of close to $25 billion

During a large police search, backed by the US, Escobar was found and cornered in one of his homes. He suffered three shots on the rooftop in which the final one killed him.

Died 1 day after his 44th birthday


2. George Jung


Portrayed by Johnny Depp in the movie ‘BLOW’

Was introduced to Escobar through another criminal and began doing business with him

During his career Jung made more than $100 million

Was betrayed by his partners and sent to prison, he remains there today (in Texas) and will be released in 2014. He’ll be 72 years when he is released.
